Powerful Paintings from a Watercolor Master

“The most nearly ‘perfect’ paintings to me are rarely the ones simply characterized by technical expertise. More often, they are the ones in which you can sense the beating heart of the artist just below the surface—flaws included.”

Twenty years into a career as architect and architectural illustrator, Thomas Schaller embarked upon a bold new path as a fine artist. Today he is one of the world’s most accomplished watercolor artists, celebrated for his poignant treatment of light and its dynamic interplay with the natural and manmade landscape.

The first and only collection of work from this popular contemporary artist, Thomas W. Schaller: Architect of Light features 150 of his finest paintings—buildings, bridges, boats, people and other scenes from around the world. In a series of essays, Schaller ruminates on his journey as an artist, what drives him, and the “truths” he’s discovered along the way. He offers not only sage insight on composition, color and other technical aspects of painting, but also provocative perspective on more fundamental struggles for the artist, such as overcoming self-doubt and honing one’s own, unique voice.

Schaller’s essays, like his art, shine with passion, authenticity, and the epiphanies that comprise his artistic constellation: discovering the power of breathing… the secret to “finding the art” in any subject … and how the quest for perfection led him to worry less about the final result to take greater joy in the process itself. It’s a pivoting read for collector, art-lover and practicing artist alike, full of views to savor and enlighten.

“If you see my work, it is not so important that you understand exactly what I may have felt when painting it. If it is enough to draw you in a little, stay a while, and even begin to imagine your own stories, then I have succeeded. For that moment, in silent conversation, you and I have connected. That is all I could hope for my work to do.”
—P32

“Try not to paint the scenes and objects in front of you. Try to paint the light that illuminates, and gives them life.”
—P52
